1 My heart is enraptur’d with Jesus;
My constant companion is He;
His love to my heart is more precious
Than anything earthly could be.

Refrain:
But what will it be?
Oh, what will it be?
A sinner redeem’d by His grace,
Beholding Him face to face,
Oh, what will it be?
My soul! oh, what will it be?

2 A perfect delight I am finding,
Communing with Him day by day;
A light on my path ever shining
While walking with Him in the way. [Refrain]

3 If fellowship here is so blessed,
Oh, who can conceive the delight,
When eye to eye we shall behold Him,
When faith has been merg’d into sight? [Refrain]

4 When death, our last foe, has been conquer’d,
And we shall have enter’d the rest,
The city prepared for the ransom’d,
The home of the blood-wash’d and blest. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
